I just had 16 teeth pulled and an upper denture put in right away. The dentist told me to remove them after 24hrs an rinse with warm salt water. I haven't removed them yet, it's been 45hrs and I'm so swollen all the way to the bottom of my eyes. My denture doesn't hurt I'm just too scared to remove it afraid it will not go back in. Did anyone else wait until some of the swelling went down in their face before you removed them??
